Just updated to Mac OS Mojave and Camtasia won't record, it just says "Waiting" in green with the darkened screen and then a box.comes up and says Waiting for device initialization The device is taking longer than expected to initialize. Check your device. Have updated Camtasia 3 to 3.1.6 and have followed all advice from Ticket # #516090.

Received advice from Aaron S at Tech Support. Go to this link and follow the instructions for allowing the microphone to work in Camtasia 3 in newly installed Mojave. https://support.techsmith.com/hc/en-us/articles/360018592411

no need to update Amber, I have camtasia 2 as well, all it took was go to system preferences > security & privacy > privacy > and then select mic on the left and check the box next to Camtasia on the right. And it works!

Thanks so much -- solved my problem.  I sure appreciate all those out there like yourself that share tricks like this to make the lives of the rest of us so much easier, rather than keeping everything to yourselves.  Thanks again.
